I have been curious about this world of juicing for awhile now. I decided to jump on the bandwagon. I don’t eat as many vegetables or fruits I should in a day – that is for sure, so juicing really helps provide all the nutrients I was missing out on before. I had been a big fan of all the green juices you can buy at coffee shops and grocery stores. But my oh my, this juicer quickly converted me over.
What to buy: You will need a base when juicing. The fruits/vegetables that produce more of a volume I have found are: kale, carrots, cucumbers, & celery. From there, you can add other fruits that add more vitamins in the mix. These can be – beets, lemons, cuties, and/or berries. Spices/herbs will add that extra flavor to your drink. My favorite spice to add is ginger root.
I was pretty surprised at how many ingredients it takes to make a full glass. It can be a little expensive once you add all the ingredients up, but it is worth it in the end.
2 beets + 5 cuties + 1/2 cucumber + ginger root
First time around making this recipe, the cucumber taste was overwhelming. Your first time around, even 1/4 of a cucumber might be just the right amount!
I am excited to try new recipes. I’d love to hear about your juicing experiences! ~Nicole
